- WINTER 2017/2018 -

Other Volunteer Enrichment Opportunities

Volunteers are welcome to join us for our Winter Lecture Series for an introduction to the world of Therapeutic Riding, a refresher or professional development with a wide range of topics from the anatomy of the rider to business organization and fundraising. You may choose to attend one workshop, or receive discounts if you book multiple workshops.

Volunteers may wish to consider additional professional trainings to deepen their understanding of the therapeutic riding environment. We encourage this and some organizations are willing to sponsor their employees who are looking for skills enrichment outside of their normal working environment. Subjects include mentor training, therapy horse, volunteer management and working with veterans.

Training sessions are conducted rain or shine. Please wear sturdy footwear and barn appropriate clothing.
